Positioned at the rear of the home is a very generously sized, open plan living and dining room, which opens to a huge covered rear deck, private flat lawn, manicured gardens and purpose built playground. This is a beautiful space, inviting living to easily spill outside and enjoy an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The adjoining kitchen is spacious with stone benchtops, a 900mm Ilve cooker, plenty of storage and convenient servery windows to the deck.
At the front of this level is a lovely bedroom with ensuite and another large room that is currently used as a substantial home office, but would equally be a sumptuous sitting room. The guest bathroom on this level is stylishly appointed with marble tiles and quality fixtures.
Upstairs there are an additional three bedrooms, including the fabulous Master suite, which has a walk-in robe and stunning ensuite. There is also a library, informal living room and the main bathroom that has a classic freestanding claw-foot bath. The home is a wonderful combination of heritage features and contemporary style and convenience, creating a multi-layered property that is rich with character. Deep, wrap around verandas on both levels are not only visually appealing, but they make the home even more liveable, providing multiple opportunities to relax regardless of the season or time of day. The upper level veranda is the perfect vantage point to enjoy sensational, uninterrupted views across the local area and city skyline.
The home has air-conditioning throughout and a myriad of traditional features, including soaring ceilings, bay windows, pretty stained glass and floor to ceiling double-hung windows. The fully irrigated gardens are serviced by 2 x 20,000 litre water tanks. There is a secure double car garage with the space for another two cars off street all serviced by driveway turntable, a security system and automatic pedestrian gate with intercom.
The location is central and close to vibrant lifestyle areas and within easy access of the CBD, the Wesley Hospital and numerous schools.
